Dear Shyam - I remember seeing black coloured Fiat 1100D cars with seats in dark and light grey when I was in school. It would look good, a black car with such an upholstery combination.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Seems like your first fast restoration. Atleast from the ones I have heard about.

Arrey Cyrus baba, all Fiats look the same under the cover no? And these 2 you speak of are different bodystyles, so Im confused how they can look the same. Please elaborate.

Ah, another nice resto. Makes me feel nostalgic. (You should get white indicator lenses though)




Your Fiat reminds me of our Padmini, as I'd mentioned before. Quite a similar shade.

I Got a few good White reflectors too. They will be put when the wiring is done. Also, the Effect we were looking for was basically not a flashy new car. But something that looks like it has rolled right out of the assembly line in 1967.

The car, doesnt look newly painted. It looks like it is an old car which has been extremely well maintained.

Also, this car has THE SMOOTHEST ENGINE i have EVER driven! And for once, there is no freeflow in this car. It has the S1 Manifold with a Standard S1 muffler with a 2" Tail pipe. But it is not noisy.

the color is too similar to the select, but the best part is the black b-piller & the rims. the transparent indicators will look better.

I can support the statement, I too drove a '68 Delite which was so smooth that on idling i wouldnt know if the engine was running. Italian workmanship I guess.

Dear all - guess what, yesterday evening I finally found 2 nos of OH REE GEE NUL (as President likes to call it) Lucas TVS headlights in Nasik but as they are in the old american pattern, I can only fit 100/90 watts bulbs. I got OH REE GEE NUL bulbs also, alongwith OH REE GEE NUL holders. I had to pay a lot of money as these are very rare to get these days but what the hell, I just paid and got them, these are just not to be seen anymore. I also got 2 nos very OH REE GEE NUL front side light lenses in white colour also. So yesterday was a rewarding but financially ruining evening. These will go on MRF6466.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
